2. Going back even further

There were multiple distinct migrations across the Bering sea, so you could say they weren't even the first.

13. Could even be possible that the people who "came first"

Arrived from the south; some super-early sites in South America have a lot of similarities to Australian Aborigine sites.

7. Interdimensional beings!



A few native American tribes claim the existance of such creatures.* Jane Goodall said on NPR that there is no proof, but that being a 'romantic' she 'wants to believe.' Since I want to believe too, just because, I found this the best one. The wackier, the better, and the better to understand the Baggers amongst us. They indeed, may believe in several things before breakfast:

One fringe theory, supported by paranormal investigator Jon-Erik Beckjord, theorizes that the lack of hard evidence supporting Bigfoot's existence may be due to the creature being an interdimensional being that slips in and out of dimensions.

*Unfortunately, the picture is disputed, according to Wikipedia's Bigfoot or Sasquatch page, despite the native claims about these guys.

Frame 352 from the Patterson-Gimlin film, alleged by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin to show a bigfoot, and by some others to show a man in an ape suit.

Happy Independence Day! I don't see any space ships hovering overhead, not yet, anyway.

10. See that teeny patch of Choctaw on the Gulf? That's me.

Or at least a part of me. The rest is immigrant. Irish, like a whole lot of the rest of the South.

Happy Fourth!

20. My wife, who's Asian, is keeps telling me that all Native Americans are descended from Asians.

At least until the Europeans got here and started "mixing" the DNA up.

27. Yep - That's what recent DNA tests show.

But then the question is, where did the Asians come from?

33. That isn't what I was thinking about "the troubles began"

I knew it was far from a "Peace & Love" continent long before the strangers sailed and stayed...

Should have written "this is when the destruction of the eco-systems began:" or "the beginning of the end" or such.

22. I celebrate Independence Day, but

I cringe at the way the early colonists treated the native Americans.

My 7th great-grandfather Thomas Perley was on the committee that in 1701 bought the deed for the town of Boxford, MA, from three of the grandsons of Masconnomet, sagamore (chief) of the Agawam tribe of the Algonquian People, for two shillings and six pence....oh, and some "vittels and drink. (See 2nd footnote)
?
The name of another distant great-grandfather of mine, John Peabody, appears at the top of the page. (Both Thomas Perley and John Peabody were Salem witch trials jurors. )

24. My great-great grandmother on my fathers side was a Potawatomi woman

Intermarriage between French-Canadian settlers and Native American women was very common in this area.

Don't have any photos but I have been told she was very beautiful.

25. What Native Americans and Europeans have in common is

that both are part of a group that exterminated every other hominid on the planet Earth. Flat out genocide on an unimaginable scale.

I don't hold it against them... against us. It is just what happened.

31. My mother got off the train from Toronto in 1919 to steal jobs from Real Americans.

All the way from Leeds in England. She was 9 and started work as kitchen maid at that age.

Wonder if you can order one off of Amazon? I love maps like that.
